really liked it
bookshelves: fiction-scifi-fantasy-horror, favorites
Read in August, 1993

A complete and total mindfuck, but not just for the plot, which involves two time-travelers from a future based around Elvis Presley going back in an attempt to abduct the young King and bring him back as a Messiah. Language in the future has evolved and mutated to an almost alien level, making the vocabulary of the two would-be kidnappers as much a challenge for the reader to decipher as the Scottish patois in Trainspotting was.
